The society of phenomenology and existential philosophy

Anthony Steinbock

pp. 267-281

In this chapter, I comment on the organization of the Society for Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy (SPEP) and on SPEP as an organization by describing its inspirations as an "Openness Toward and Being Other," its enthusiasm in terms of "Eyes Wide Open," some dangers and shortsightedness it faced as "Eyes Wide Shut," the relation of continental philosophy to phenomenology as "Continental Drift," and the understanding of SPEP as a phenomenological movement as "Edging Beyond Itself." I conclude with some reflections on the Phenomenology Research Center.
